CHRIS TOMLIN CHRISTMAS
December 1, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
From his rural Texas roots, cutting his chops on his father’s Country-Western record collection, to the small Baptist church where he was first compelled by congregational singing, and now in his current position as the definitive worship leader for the worldwide church, Chris Tomlin has always been motivated to provide spiritual seekers a voice to talk with God through music.
Fast-forward thirty years and the artist whose humble demeanor suggests music is as much his heart’s calling as a heady career has sold millions of albums, streamed billions of tracks, spawned 15 #1 radio singles and been awarded with multiple RIAA Gold and Platinum certifications, and a list of Grammy, Dove, Billboard Music and American Music Awards.
Further cementing the profound impact of his widely sung songs, Chris joined Garth Brooks, Justin Timberlake and Pitbull as the fourth artist in digital music history to receive the prestigious Sound Exchange Digital Radio Award for over 1 billion digital radio streams.
Affirming his lifetime calling to “write songs that help people worship God,” Chris continues to evolve in his musical leadership role for the nation with the recent inauguration of Worship Night in America events – unifying the church through an evening of worship through music and prayer. Over the last few years, live Worship Night in America events have sold out historic venues like New York City’s Madison Square Garden and Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and last year’s nationwide theatricast sold over 60,000 tickets to viewings on more than 440 screens. “The church has been leading with politics for too long,” Chris opines. “The church’s place in the world is to lead with prayer. And one of music’s roles is to help us see more clearly through the fogginess of current events.”
“Worship is much more about seeing than it is singing. Worship opens our eyes and helps us see the truth in our faith.”
